My bump seems a little bit more obvious if I place my hand on top of my stomach
I posted this on Instagram on Saturday night; it seems like my bump is also a little bit bigger by the end of the day
How far along: 17 weeks & 3 days
Size of baby: About 5 inches long, weighs about 5 ounces, and is the size of an onion (or the size of your open hand)
Weight gain: 7 lbs
Maternity clothes: I bought a few longer non-maternity tank tops to start wearing to work under cardigans and those have worked out well. I attempted the belly band with some jeans but it just looked goofy. I've been alternating between 3 pairs of dress pants that still fit comfortably and luckily, I'm allowed to wear jeans to work on Fridays so I only need to wear one pair of dress pants twice Monday-Thursday.
Symptoms: Still getting a bad headache around 3:00ish each afternoon, also been having some minor cramping & pressure
Gender: Thinking boy (we find out in 2 weeks!)
Exercise: I was able to run 20 miles last week & teach 4 classes but I didn't take a rest day so this week I'm aiming to run 15-20 miles & teach 3 classes (I had to find a sub for one my classes this week because of another commitment) and take a rest day
Food cravings: Cheese & crackers
Food aversions: Nothing
Movement: Not that I've noticed yet but like I said before, I've been feeling some minor cramping & pressure but I think it's just everything expanding
Sleep: Still been sleeping relatively well but I've started using a body pillow to keep myself from rolling over on to my back
Looking forward to: Going to a friend's baby shower this weekend & I'm excited to see her and a couple of my other good friends (and one of them is also pregnant)
Best moment of the week: Our crib was delivered!
